Simple video editor for Windows

My son’s a big Club Penguin fan. He’s even started Waddle Spot, a web site devoted to Club Penguin tips, news, and a guide to interesting places.

Recently he’s been making screencasts of various things he finds on Club Penguin. How to get hidden items, pictures of his favorite igloos, that sort of thing. He’s gotten pretty far just by capturing video with Camstudio and running audio in the background, but he wants to expand and start editing his videos.

Any suggestions for a good freeware or inexpensive video editor that’s easy to use? He wants to be able to remove portions of the video, splice videos together, add in still images, add audio, and titles. He’s on Windows 2000, which doesn’t come with any sort of video tools.

Try Jahshaka: http://www.jahshaka.org/ I have no personal experience with this app, but it's open-source and runs on Windows 2000.

Hi, you can try Windows Movie Maker. It's free and it's pretty easy to use. Good luck

Movie Maker isn't available on Windows 2000. Since posting this, however, he's built a full video editing studio with dual opterons and adobe premier and avid. Amazing to see how far he's come in a year.
